sunny day, sweepin’ the clouds away…

I suppose Coop and Ty are getting too old for Sesame Street – one of the very best shows for children. (*sigh*)  But they still love to watch these old clips from “way back” when Mom used to watch it as a kid. If you’re a child of the 70’s or early 80’s, the following will bring back happy memories.  And if you have little ones, gather them around the computer – they’ll love these too…

these are a few of my favorite things…

~Mad Men on AMC ~

(Kris and I watched the whole first season in about 4 evenings.  It is SO GOOD.  It does, however, make me really thankful that he is not an ad man in the 60’s.  Wow.)

~Archer Farms Blueberry Granola with Flax ~

(I can’t stop eating this stuff)

~Method All Purpose Lavender Spray ~

(I think maybe it’s true what they say about lavender, that it improves your mood?  I don’t know, but I do seem to feel a little happier when I’m cleaning with it.  Regardless, I just love the smell.)  🙂

frosting shots

Exactly what you think it is – and also pretty much the GREATEST IDEA EVER. Some bakeries have started selling these for around 75 cents a pop.  I’ve always preferred the frosting over the actual cupcake.  I need one (or 3) of these right about now.  YUM!

Filed under things that amuse me


Back before CDs, did you ever spend hours making the perfect mixtape for someone?  I know I did.  Or were you ever the recipient of a mixtape, maybe from a boy or girl that you really liked – and you’d listen to it over and over again, probably reading way too much into it?  Oh, angsty youth – how I miss you some days.  This website is really cool – people post old mixtapes and tell the stories behind them.  And you can listen to the whole tape.  My new favorite site of the moment.
